Latin America Launch of the Energy Efficiency Indicators Online Training Courses

Background information

Data and indicators are key to designing, tracking and improving energy efficiency policies and programmes. Defining and collecting these indicators, however, can be challenging. This is particularly true in the field of energy efficiency, which cuts across all sectors of the economy, and often straddles across the jurisdiction of national, state and local governments.

Dedicating resources to defining and collecting these indicators is critical to ensure that the many benefits of energy efficiency are visible, building support and improving policy development and implementation. For this reason, the IEA has developed two free online courses that provide the necessary tools for analysts and policy makers to prioritise and develop energy efficiency indicators:

  • Energy Efficiency Indicators: Fundamentals on Statistics
  • Energy Efficiency Indicators: Essentials for Policy Making

Each course focuses on four sectors: residential, services, industry, and transportation and requires approximately 10 hours to complete.

This webinar will be the launch event for the IEA’s online courses on energy efficiency indicators for Latin America. First developed in 2018, the courses have been translated into Spanish to deepen engagement in the region.

The launch event will feature experts from the IEA and government officials from the region.

It will be held in English and Spanish with simultaneous interpretation.
